TORONTO, Feb. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Corus Entertainment's ABC Spark today announced that it will be airing two reality series, Dancing Fools, which will be hosted by Melissa Peterman, star of the network's hit comedy series, Baby Daddy, and a docu-soap, The Vineyard (working title). Production on both series will begin this spring.

Dancing Fools is a half-hour unscripted comedy hosted by Melissa Peterman, who also stars in ABC Family's Baby Daddy. The series is created and executive produced by Phil Gurin (The Singing Bee, Oh Sit), the series is produced by the Gurin Company.

The Vineyard, a dramatic coming-of-age docu-soap, follows a handful of 20-somethings in Martha's Vineyard for the summer.
